Rose & John’s Do-It Together Wedding


by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

This wedding has such a amazing spirit, it shines right through the screen. It was shot by A Beutiful Day Photography, out of Seattle, and took place in the bride’s families 100 year old camp in Mendocino California. This wedding speaks to my hippie-kid upbringing in a way that just warms my little soul. For lots of people small church weddings remind them of childhood… but for me, it’s weddings with hay-bales.

    The bride and groom look very relaxed and having a sense of calm seems to bring forth a romantic sentiment to the event. Their wedding ceremony picture looks very poignant.
